Collaboration aims to strengthen cyber security initiatives as the foundation for digital transformation.
Symantec and NTT Security have announced their intention to enter into a strategic partnership to bolster web security services offerings to customers across the cloud, mobile and on-premises.
By planning to bring together Symantec's Cloud-Delivered Web Security Services and CASB (Cloud Access Security Broker) technologies, key elements of the Symantec Integrated Cyber Defense Platform, with NTT Security's threat detection and advanced analytics capabilities, the companies intend to enhance security services and provide customers flexibility and efficiency in their digital transformation journey.
Further collaboration could see both parties sharing threat telemetry information to provide a more sophisticated security service suite.
The new services will plan to provide a comprehensive set of in-depth application controls designed to manage the increasing use of social and business web applications and enhance compliance and cybersecurity for customers by consistently enforcing acceptable use policies.
Greg Clark, Symantec CEO, said: "Security is an integral part of digital transformation and our planned partnership with NTT Security, a leader in the space, will help provide protection for customers throughout their journey. By combining our Integrated Cyber Defense Platform with NTT Security's leading solutions, we are aiming to ensure that businesses can respond to evolving threats and secure their data wherever it lives."
Jun Sawada, NTT Security CEO commented: "Our strategic partnership with Symantec will greatly enhance the level of advanced web security services both parties can deliver, and I expect this partnership to expand to other areas such as endpoint and the entire cloud-based security area. NTT Security offers through our operating companies Dimension Data, NTT Communications and NTT DATA, a wide portfolio of Cybersecurity Consulting, System Integration and Support Services, depending on the maturity level and specific requirements from our clients."
